COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re turning things deliciously upside down with an aggressively hopped cold-fermented brew that brings together the clean crisp finish of a lager with the hoppy aroma and character of an IPA. PROST! To turning convention on its head.

mjteeters (37) - Issaquah, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Mixed 12-pack of Widmer. Pours pale golden with a foamy off white head. Light floral/fruit aroma. Medium bitter with some pine and citrus. Medium finish with a bit of fizz. Another nice IPA

kramer (4700) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a one finger frothy white head that left some sticky lacing. The nose is just lightly hoppy with some caramel and toasty maltiness. The flavor is pretty bland and boring with a minimal hop bitterness and a fairly clean caramel malt base. Very short finish with just a light lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not all that big of a fan of this one. The malt is just a little too heavy for the amount of hops.

I would be the first to dismiss this beer just because it’s a lager. I bought it on accident..... I have never felt so good about a mistake in my life. This is a fantastic beer. If anything the lagering put the hops farther to the front than in most ipas. The body is very much more ipa like. It’s thicker than a lager normally is. Very good, I would get this again and not just cuz its cheap like with normal lagers.

showsto (1) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014 does not count
Clear golden color. Light hop and malt aromas. Some citrus and grass smells. Medium carbonation. Not much of a front taste somewhat flat mouth feel. but the back taste is smooth with floral and citrus notes. Overall this is probably more of a pale ale but it’s a decent beer.

Lemon, pineapple, caramel in aroma. Flavor also lemon, corn, grapefruit rind, white toast but all a little thin. Light & slightly flat in the mouth. Clear yellow with amber tinge, modest white head. Dry, bitter finish.

b3shine (4465) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2014
Draft to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent golden orange with off-white head. Smells solid; a fairly bitter hop profile with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a bit of sweetness. Average on the palate. A enjoyable lager.

rougeau13 (1868) - Texas, USA - APR 8, 2014
Clear golden with a whitish head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of citru, caramel, grain, and resin. Taste is thin ipa as expected; somewhat grainy and substantially bitter with mild sweetness. Light medium bodied and dry.

Scrapersnbeer (1439) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2014
Aroma of orange and resin, some spice way in back. Clear orange like an IPA, but very still. Sweet malty flavor, hop/spice serves only as balance. Really more like your American pale style than anything too hoppy. Flush mellow body. Just alright.
